Weekly textiles, clothing, shoes and accessories recycling

Leave your bins in a clearly visible place at the edge of your property by 6.30am on collection day. We work as normal on bank holiday Mondays and Good Friday. What if a collection is missed?

Please leave textiles, clothing, shoes and accessories out for recycling in a clear, sealed, labelled bag next to your other recycling.

You can recycle:

  • Clothes
  • Home textiles such as curtains quilt-covers, pillow-cases etc (not the pillows, duvets or cushions themselves please - just the covers)
  • Paired shoes
  • Bags and belts

DON'T put your textiles in your green recycling bin. They can't be easily separated from the other stuff, and may lead to the whole load being rejected. Right thing, right bin.

Please don't recycle:

  • Pillows, duvets and cushions - we can only recycle the covers
  • Heavily soiled or worn items
